Marlborough, New Zealand | Best Wine Destinations 2017

By Joe Czerwinski
New Zealand’s Marlborough wine region is the country’s vinous powerhouse, responsible for approximately 75 percent of all production. But until recently, it has lagged behind other parts of the country in amenities available to international visitors. Blenheim, the main town, reflects its agricultural roots, dotted with tractor supply and hardware stores. Small lunch counters that feature different Asian cuisines or meat pies are sprinkled throughout downtown.
